CrossFit & Weightlifting Coach
Coach Jared discovered CrossFit in 2010 when while working towards a graduate degree in counseling in Seattle. He quickly fell in love with the challenge, the camaraderie, and how the endless variety of movements tapped into his nerd side. Coaching CrossFit soon became a career that allowed for his previous roles as an educator, therapist, and coach come to life in a fun and dynamic way.

He is a passionate believer in the importance of education, working hard, working smart, good coaching, and the importance of having fun, laughing, and the all-important high five.
In 2016, Coach Jared enrolled in a Doctorate in Sports Psychology program at the University of Western States seeking to merge his two passions of mental strength/skills and athletic performance. Since then he has worked as a sports performance consultant for CrossFit Regional/Games athletes, crew, club football, club baseball teams.
